Dr Arifa Parker and healthcare workers from the Tafelsig Clinic, take a breather between exercises, at a City of Cape Town wellness day, at the Thusong Family and Youth Centre, in Tafelsig, last Friday.

Dr Parker said the day formed part of a campaign to promote a healthy lifestyle among the City’s frontline workers, especially healthcare workers, in light of the impact Covid-19 has had on the mental and physical well-being of many.

The day’s activities included a number of fun activities, including a group fitness session presented by fitness instructors from the Virgin Active group of gyms and talks on mental wellness.
